Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have arrested the National Publicity Secretary Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh.
He was picked up at his residence located at Drive One, Prince and Princess Estate, in the Games Village area of Abuja today.
Metuh’s Special Assitant, Mr. Richard Ihediwa, confirmed the arrest of his boss.
He added that Metuh was still being kept at the commission’s headquarters while his lawyers were making frantic efforts to reach him.
Metuh is said to be under investigation for allegedly collecting about N400m from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sabo Dasuki (retd.).
A company he was said to have interest in is also under investigation.
The money he allegedly collected from Dasuki was alleged to be part of the funds meant for the procurement of arms and ammunition for the fight against Boko Haram in North-East.
Metuh had agreed that he collected undisclosed sum of money from former President Goodluck Jonathan.
But he said he got the undisclosed amount from carrying out unspecific work as the spokesperson for the PDP for the former President.
